Enter to #WIN the set: The Truth About Letting Go AND The Truth About Faking!
From the author of the bestselling Mindjack series comes a new future-noir serial, The Debt Collector. The first episode, Delirium, launches today (3/20).
“The street-smart science of LOOPER meets the cold, just-the-facts voice of DOUBLE INDEMNITY in this edgy, future-noir thriller that will have you holding your breath, looking over your shoulder, and begging for more.” —Leigh Talbert Moore, author of The Truth About Faking, The Truth About Letting Go, and Rouge
“Do you owe more than your life is worth? No worries. A more deserving person than you can benefit from that excess life—and someone else will get paid with it. Enter the Debt Collector.” —Dianne Salerni, author of We Hear the Dead, The Caged Graves, and The Eighth Day (HarperCollins 2014)
I swear I wasn’t going to jump on the New Adult Contemporary Romance bandwagon. I SWEAR. I love my sci-fi/paranormal/fantasy characters.
But, I’ve had this idea for a book in my head forever, like twenty years forever, and I was reading Hopeless and The Plot Whisperer at the same time trying to both get psyched to write Frayed and also take a break from the whole sci-fi/paranormal/fantasy thing and I LITERALLY woke up in the middle of the night with an entire book in my head. Later that morning while I was making my daughter a “round egg” (sunnyside up) I texted myself the plot. By the end of that day, I had a six page outline.
That was a week ago and I’ll have the first draft of CROSSING done by Wednesday.
What’s my deal? Why is this book so much easier to write than say, FOUND, which took me for-evah?
*I’m not creating a world. CROSSING happens now at the university I went to, in a town that I lived in for five years.
*The main character, Dani Walker, is an English/Theatre double major just like I was, taking all the classes that I took.
*Every setting is a place I’ve actually been. I don’t have to work to describe what my room looked like, because I just describe what it looked like!
*The characters are all based on real people.
*The twist really happened to me.
*I get to rewrite my history through characters that are better looking, wittier, sexier, and all around more screwed up than me and my real life people were and I get to give myself the Happily Ever After For Now that I deserved back then. (Don’t worry, I finally got closure Halloween of 1999 when my ex and I went out for drinks and he apologized for being an epic douche. We’re Facebook friends now. )
So, in a word, CROSSING is happening and it’s happening soon. Look, I already have a killer cover by Steven Novak and a vague blurb.
He stole her lipstick…and her heart.
Twenty-year-old Dani Walker can’t believe her luck when she’s paired up with the gorgeous Liam Garrett as her Acting I scene partner – or when he asks her out. Being a Plain Jane with a mouth on her hasn’t exactly served Dani well in the guy department. In fact, she’s never been on a second date. Still, she lets go of her insecurities and falls for Liam, despite feeling like he’s holding something back from her.
When Liam finally musters the courage to reveal his secret to Dani, she learns the true meaning of accepting the ones we love for who they are.
Add it on Goodreads here for cryin’ out loud!
Oh, and while you’re at it, pick up a copy of FOUND. It’s, like, the best book I ever wrote that no one read. You don’t have to have read the Zellie books to enjoy it!
From Stacey Wallace Benefiel, the author of the Zellie Wells trilogy, comes a New Adult trilogy set in the Society world.
Penny Black hasn’t had it easy. Just about everything you’d expect to happen to a harassed foster-kid turned junkie has happened to Penny. Add in the mysterious power to rewind time, conducting events around her, and it’s a wonder she held up on the streets for so many years. Now, at seventeen, the New Society has found her. Finally, Penny is where she belongs. But that doesn’t stop the visions, or the need to protect the victims shown to her.
*The Penny Black trilogy is a companion to the Zellie Wells trilogy and not a continuation of the series. (It’s set 18 years in the future with a new cast of characters.)
*Due to language and sexuality, FOUND is recommended for older teens. (Most of the characters are out of high school and preparing for college.)
Coming soon to the Apple iBook store and in paperback!
Haven’t read the Zellie Wells trilogy yet? Pick up all three novels together for $6.99 at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Smashwords, and iTunes. Or get the first novel, Glimpse, for FREE at all ebook retailers.

This year, the Indelibles are sponsoring INDIEkissing – we’re posting kissing scenes from our books!
My scene is from FOUND (Penny Black #1) which will be out March, 1st. Don’t forget to check out the contest to win an E-ARC of FOUND after the hot kissing scene. <3
“Focus, Penny. You can do it. Think about…next week. Any day next week,” Christopher coos and takes my hand.
My eyelids drop closed and I’m watching myself.
I lean into some guy’s firm chest. He’s standing with his back against a green door — number thirty-six. And this tall, wiry, not-quite-grown man with wavy brown hair and caramel colored eyes… I want him. His, thick, dark eyelashes are so long. I want those eyelashes tickling against mine, his full lips brushing across my lips. I go up on my tiptoes and his big warm hands cup my face. He looks at my mouth, his gaze a mixture of desire and apology. I grab onto his hips and draw him nearer, closing the distance between his mouth and mine. I kiss him gently and then he reciprocates, the pressure deepening.
I open my eyes.
“Awesome,” Ben says, nodding his head like Ah, Yeeeeeeeeah. “At least you know the future will be hot.”
I glare at him, even though the needle on my trust-o-meter has swung back over into the positive. If I truly did see what was going to happen to me next week and hadn’t felt anything bad toward this guy, then this crazyass adventure I was embarking on couldn’t be a wrong choice. But why did I want to kiss him?
Darren’s face blooms in my brain and I instantly feel like I’ve cheated on him, which is ridiculous because we haven’t been together in the year since I ditched him to get clean. “Who’s the, uh, dream guy?”
Ben grins widely, dropping at least a decade off of his looks. “Your Lookout, Wyatt Adams.”

Free Souls by Susan Kaye Quinn
(Book Three of the Mindjack Trilogy) Now Available!
When your mind is a weapon, freedom comes at a price.
Four months have passed since Kira left home to join Julian’s Jacker Freedom Alliance, but the hole in her heart still whistles empty where her boyfriend Raf used to be. She fills it with weapons training, JFA patrols, and an obsessive hunt for FBI agent Kestrel, ignoring Julian’s worries about her safety and repeated attempts to recruit her for his revolutionary chat-casts. When anti-jacker politician Vellus surrounds Jackertown with the National Guard, Kira discovers there’s more to Julian’s concerns than she knew, but she’s forced to take on a mission that neither want and that might be her last: assassinating Senator Vellus before he can snuff out Julian’s revolution and the jackers she’s come to love.
Early Praise for Free Souls
“Quinn paints a picture of a not-too-distant America where politicians inflame the hatred of one section of the populace for another—all for their own gain—and you worry that her world is not so far off from our own.”
— Dianne Salerni, author of We Hear the Dead, The Caged Graves, and the forthcoming The Eighth Day
“Free Souls starts with a bang and doesn’t let up. Like a mash-up of all your favorite science-fiction adventures from Star Wars to The Legend of Korra, it blends nonstop action, nail-biting escapes, and great romance. I absolutely loved it! A great series conclusion—a must-read.”
— Leigh Talbert Moore, author of Rouge and The Truth About Faking
“Susan did it again. Free Souls was WOW! I expected Kira to step up to her role as heroine but not like this. Surprises kept coming until the very end which tied up more loose ends than I knew existed. Warning: Don’t start reading until you have time to finish. I didn’t want to put Free Souls down for a second. It’s that kind of book.”
— Sher A. Hart, Goodreads Review
Susan’s over at Amy Saunder’s blog today (12.14.12), answering questions about how she came up with the mages’ abilities, what kind of mage she would be, and all about her future works.
